Would be nice, but will be closer to the JKU. I've seen the color chip.

Would be awesome if it was darker like that 2 door but I think most images indicate it will be closer to the Unlimited.

Thanks Pat for the information update. If you click the colors tab in the site below you can show a 2-door Wrangler in Gecko, or their interpretation of the color.


2012 Jeep Wrangler Pricing & Research Information

Geesh, its only several more months until June. Usually about the time the new Wranglers are introduced for mid to late summer availability. Pat, any word on the times for ordering 2013 Wranglers which should bring some different colors?

Pat can you take an order from someone out of your state, say California, and have it delivered to Peoria, Illinois?

Too bad it won't be at the Chicago show. Would have liked to have seen on in the wild. Thanks for the updates.

It's kind of hard to tell but Gecko in this picture looks as if it's a metallic color. Don't know if anyone remembers but back in the 60's Plymouth and Dodge muscle cars were available in: Sublime (Gecko), Plum Crazy (Beautiflul metallic purple) and Hemi Orange (Crush). I wouldn't mind seeing a Gecko or a Plum Crazy but I doubt that the Plum will happen.

Thanks Alexia

Thank you, Alexia, for your efforts to depict the correct color. You have rekindled my hopes that were dampened after seeing the UK's version.

Thanks Pat. Hope a Gecko slithers its way into the Chicago Auto Show. Anyone and everyone who goes to the Chicago Auto Show, please take numerous pictures of a Gecko from all angles and post them and give your impressions. Hoping it looks very near like the Kawasaki motorcycle green.

Also, the Arctic Edition is no longer available to order. But good news for you Winter Chill people, heard the Winter Chill should be available to order in early March. Saw Winter Chill at the L.A Auto Show and there is just enough blue coming through to not to appear more silver than blue, if that makes sense.

If only this possible Volcano Edition would come in Stinger Yellow. Pat, have you heard of this edition?

dimasin Buy now and feel regrets later (mucho later...)! Who cares how my car will look in 15 years!
I truly loved the look of rendered Gecko. I hope it will be the same live. I don't mind UK website rendition with Resque Greenish theme.
01-25-2012 04:16 PM
Sjeupie That render looks really good actually. If it looks like that, I might take it. That is, if Detonator Yellow does not miraculously shows up again!

However, I saw today a green (kinda Gecko'ish) Suzuki Vitara from the 90's. Since the paint was no metallic it had faded quite a lot and the whole car just looked oooooold! Very, very, very old. And misplaced as well. Some colours and cars get old in style (A Ford Mustang from the 60's for example) and other cars just get really dull like minivans from the 80's. This gecko'ish Suzuki was definitely like the latter.
What I'm trying to say is: how would this gecko Jeep look like in, say, 15 years? I see flame red TJ's and they still look awesome. Will a gecko be the same?

Hmm, not sure if I'm explaining myself good here. It's a feeling hard to describe. I'll see if I see it driving one of these days and I'll try to make a picture.

Considering Jeep's current trend of bright colors I am confident my mock up is very close.

IIWorlds Love the rendering. Hope it'll be close to that. Thanks for keeping the Gecko flame alive
01-25-2012 07:00 AM
dncswithdogs Digging your mock up Alexia ! Thank you for posting that. Our current jeep is a satin jade pearl 97 TJ. Perfect color for summer beach cruising. Could not find any in electric lime green when I was originally shopping. Sure am thinking that gecko is going to pan out just fine. I think I am going to follow up with Mr. Pat because if there is a Gecko at the auto show............roadtrip
01-25-2012 12:25 AM
GeckoJK I hope it looks more like your rendering than the Jeep UK site. Their color does seem off to me. I think it will be bright.

pat@fieldsauto.com Feb allocation for MARCH BUILD shows 02/07. I'm guessing Gecko will be open to order the same day. It will be longer than 6 weeks on an order.
01-23-2012 01:23 AM
tgeep Dimasin:
Last week Jeep customer service said their current information is that Gecko will be available for order mid-February. Mid-February orders mean the Gecko Jeeps should arrive about 6-8 weeks later so we can't see one until late March at best.
01-22-2012 11:06 AM
dimasin Well, another week passed in a wait for this truck. My dealer decided to back out of the deal since it takes too long to wait and he thinks price is gonna rise by the time they will place the order. I am really amused by all this, in the future I will probably grey-import stick shift Patrol or Padjero. Should be much easier than to buy Jeep of my choice! Now it's more like Gecko or no Gecko!

I hope that's what "pearl" in "gecko pearl" means. A deep shine or metallic finish. I think it will look good, too.
